Avril Lavigne Tops iTunes with First Single in 11Years
Happy Birthday Avril Lavigne! We can’t think of a better gift than your comeback single topping iTunes, can you? Head Above Water is currently holding the #1 spot on US iTunes, just a week after its release and nearly 11 years since the release of Avril’s last single. Currently Avril is holding the #1 spot in 36 countries! Congrats Avril! Let’s watch the official music video of Head Above Water and Avril’s first perform of Head Above Water on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
It’s no small feat that Avril is holding the No.1 spot on iTunes because Eminem’s new single Killshot is also super big hit. 2018 music charts have really been dominated by hip hop/rap so far. Just take a look at the Billboard #1 songs from the year.
Avril managed to release a great pure pop song in a hip hop/rap dominated era. Maybe we really need more positive music like Head Above Water in such a complicated world. For more information on the backstory of Head Above Water, read our previous post here.
